NEW! Weekend Project #1

Here is my next, latest, new idea. A weekend project per week!  Hang clothes on it.  Clothes take 2-4 hrs. to try (hot day) and 4-6 hrs. (cooler day.)  It's worth the wait and you'll be saving energy and using God's energy to dry your clothes.  The bonus?!  Clothes that smell sun-dried (cause they are)!!!!!!  The project is  

The "Green" Clothesline:

You need: some long 50 ft. strong, heavy-duty, thin survival rope.  Buy at: Wal-Mart, Campers Village, Mountain Equipment Co-op, etc.  I assume.  You will also need some clothes pins.

Step 1: Find a place to put your clothesline.  (I put mine between an eavestrough and a playhouse pole.)  Be sure the pole or tree is strong!   Make sure it's long.  (Mine is approximately 20 feet long I would guesstimate.)  Don't put it in the frontyard - who wants to see underwear hanging as they walk past?!?!

Step 2: Tie the rope up on the poles.  Make sure it is high up: make it about 2-3 feet taller then you are - as you will need to use a stool anyway to hang up your clothes!  For me, I can simply hang a few of them from standing on the deck or in my playhouse, and it is usually low enough in the middle.
